Question for written answer  E-001171/2022
to the Commission
Rule 138
Eugen Tomac (PPE)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Cost of Green Deal in terms of jobs

Climate change is undeniably a major challenge for Europe and the European Green Deal sets extremely ambitious targets in this regard, with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 being the ultimate goal. However this implies a major impact on various economic sectors and also the job market, with many experts predicting massive job losses as a result.

The Commission, on the other hand, is claiming that the impact of the transition to a green economy in terms of jobs will be neutral or even slightly positive.

In view of this:

1. Can the Commission quantify the real job market impact (based on a recent analysis or study) of the green transition?

2. Is it developing or envisaging retraining programmes to ease workforce transition from old technologies to new production sectors?
